Embarcadero Technologies has unveiled a new line of database products that carry the XE brand, incorporating three features: deep, native support across all major databases with a consistent user interface, centralized license management and on-demand tool access via Embarcadero ToolCloud, and an upgrade path to Embarcadero All-Access XE.

With Embarcadero's XE line, support for all database types is included with each product. Embarcadero also provides ToolCloud technology with its products.

Embarcadero XE products are distinguished by the following capabilities:

  • Heterogeneous database support: Each XE product includes native database platform and version support for all major databases, including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, MySQL, and more with each product providing a consistent user interface across database platforms.

  • Embarcadero ToolCloud-enabled: XE products provide users with on-demand, "zero-install" access to tools, along with centralized license management, which streamline the access, administration, and provisioning of tools licenses for organizations with multiple users.

  • All-Access upgradeable: Embarcadero products can be upgraded to All-Access XE, a complete, on-demand tool chest for architects, DBAs, and developers working in heterogeneous database environments.

XE products also incorporate Embarcadero's ToolCloud technology. ToolCloud centralizes tools licensing and provisioning and gives users click-and-run access to tools via Embarcadero InstantOn capabilities.

Embarcadero's initial introduction of XE products is part of a larger companywide initiative that involves extending the XE brand and capabilities across its data modeling and application development tools later this year.

Five Embarcadero XE tools are now available at varying starting prices. For more information, visit www.embarcadero.com.
